History of El Dorado Airport

The El Dorado passenger terminal was designed to replace Techo Airport during the military regime of General Gustavo Rojas Pinilla. Its construction began in 1955 and it was inaugurated at the end of 1959 along with the other facilities of the then new airport. On December 10, 1959, Eldorado International Airport was inaugurated with a spectacular aviation exhibition that began on December 6.

In 1990, the main offices of the Administrative Department of Civil Aviation, a government agency that replaced the now defunct Colombian Aviation Company, began operating on the third floor of the terminal building. The Center for Aviation Studies was also built during this year. Likewise, the National Aviation Center was built on central plots of land in the eastern part of the airport site. In 1998, the airport’s second runway was inaugurated.

At the end of 2017, all the works of El Dorado International Airport were fully completed. The airport’s passenger terminal increased from 173,000 m² to 235,000 m² and has the potential to serve 43,000,000 people a year.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, which led to national quarantine and air transport restrictions in 2020, El Dorado International Airport temporarily suspended international and domestic commercial flights, except humanitarian flights, until September 1, 2020.
